Let's touch on a topic, shall we? I've been reading a whole lot about how the Fisker Ocean's interior isn't luxurious. Well, I'm here to prove you wrong. I've had the pleasure of sitting having my very firm, not flabby buttox in some really nice exotic seats along with some ultra-lux and very expensive vehicles. I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Those cars use Alcantara too. They use them for the seats, and they use them for the steering wheel, and they use them for armrests, etc. If it's good enough to be used inside an ULTRA LUXURIOUS Ferrari or Lamborghini that's $250,000, why is not good enough for the Ocean? Why is it not luxurious if the materials that are being used are placed in cars that are 2x or 3x the Oceans price? 

The Oceans interior is somewhat simple but that doesn't make it not luxurious. It's got the necessities. The automotive industry seems like it's headed towards an entirely digital user experience, but I can appreciate Fisker keeping physical buttons for the important stuff.

I understand where you are coming from. We all have a different view of luxury. Fisker looks sparse but that's the design and similarly the new Volvo XC90 electric the same. 

The wow factor for me comes when I can see wood even if fake trims, soft material, air vents, knobs and buttons, mouded complex seats, middle rest that looks great. etc etc. I know that's not the design trim and that's why I was shocked when I saw my first Tesla M3.

I've come to expect this sparse interior as the new normal. As long as the seats and material feel quality I don't think I can complain much..besides the checkboard roof!

I like the sparse look; it may be do to owning a Model 3 for the last 4+ years.  Before the M3, I had a MB and looking at the interiors of those just seem way too busy for me now.  I did own several BMWs in the 90s and early aughts and those interiors were always fairly sparse as well.

I was able to sit in the Ocean in Santa Barbara and really appreciated the interior.  The car just felt very solid.  People seem to have issues with "recycled materials" but not sure why they equate that to cheap; maybe Fisker should use the term "reclaimed materials," those seem to sell for a premium.  I loved the Alcantara seats, so much so I am going with the SeaSalt interior even though I have a 8 y.o. kid.  The seats are another complaint from people with the "cloth looking interior" even though many high end performance cars use Alcantara including Porsche, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, McLaren, Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Audi, Lexus, BMW, Maserati and Jaguar (I'm sure there are more, those were the ones I can think of).
